Study Summary

This trial will follow patients who had high-risk results on a previous study to see if they benefit from additional testing and treatment recommendations.

Who is the study for?
Men over 18 with high-risk prostate cancer, as indicated by a Decipher test score greater than 0.45, who were part of a previous study (MCC#18523) and have had either surgery or radiation therapy for their cancer. They must be in good physical condition (ECOG status 0-1) and have at least two years of follow-up data post-treatment.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial is testing PSMA-PET imaging using F-DCFPyL injection to detect early metastatic prostate cancer in men with high genomic classifier scores from an earlier study. The goal is to see how well this imaging technique works for those at higher risk.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While the document does not specify side effects, generally PET scans are considered safe; however, there may be risks related to allergic reactions to the tracer substance or discomfort from lying still during the scan.

Participants will receive F-DCFPyL PSMA PET imaging annually for 4 years. An administered dose of 9 ± 1 mCi (333 ±37 MBq) F-DCFPyL Injection will be administered via an in-dwelling catheter placed in an antecubital vein or an equivalent venous access.

Frequently Asked Questions

These questions and answers are submitted by anonymous patients, and have not been verified by our internal team.

Are people with the target condition able to enroll in this research project at this time?

"Yes, this trial is currently looking for enrolment. According to the listing on clinicaltrials.gov, the study was first posted on December 18th, 2019 and was last updated on August 18th, 2022."

Answered by AI

How many people are being given the chance to participate in this research?

"That is correct. As of August 18th, 2022, the study detailed on clinicaltrials.gov was still recruiting patients that it first posted about on December 18th, 2019. Currently, only 1 location is being used to screen the 60 participants needed for the trial."
